Namespace:   Microsoft.VisualStudio.Package
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Package.LanguageService.14.0 (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Package.LanguageService.14.0.dll)

public void SetUserContextDirty(
	string fileName


Type: System.String

[in] The file name of the source buffer for which to mark the user context dirty.

The user context is used to provide context-sensitive help. This method is called by default from the base OnParseComplete method, which itself is called whenever a parse operation is performed with the parse reason Check. The assumption here is if a Check parse is performed, the user context is probably no longer accurate and should be marked dirty. This forces Visual Studio to update the context at the next opportunity.
